Microsoft Edge Developer

Hi, are you a web developer or designer?

“No, I just want to share feedback on Microsoft Edge.”

Please use the Feedback Hub (requires Windows 10) to submit your feedback in the Microsoft Edge category. This site is for web developer and designer feedback only. Other feedback will be closed without action.

“Yes, I’m a web developer or designer with feedback for the Microsoft Edge platform.”

Great! This site is where the Microsoft Edge team collects feature requests from the web developer and designer community in the categories listed to the right. For bugs on existing features, please log an issue on the Issue Tracker.

Your feedback will help us with planning and to better understand how web developers and designers are using the platform. Top standards-based feature requests will also be copied over to status.microsoftedge.com, where you can track its development status.

For the most actionable feedback, please search and up vote for existing suggestions before submitting a new suggestion, and create a separate suggestion per idea. Note that off topic or inappropriate suggestions may be moderated. The Microsoft Edge team will use suggestions as an important input, but there are several additional factors that inform the final roadmap.

A note from our lawyers: Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. See the Terms of Service for more information.

How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    • CSS "Will Change"

      Adds a will-change CSS property, that can be used to signal that a particular property is likely to be changed in the future, or that an element's content is likely to change.

      • Native messaging!

        Please implement Native messaging mechanism! Internet Banking users are used to sign their contracts via a smart card (which uses WinCrypt API). Nowadays, after deprecation of applets, there is no other way to access Windows API and use a smart card in order to make a trusted digital signature.

          • headless browser for testing

            It would be great if IE could be started as a headless browser (like PhantomJS) for running unit tests, taking screenshots, measuring load time, etc without having a browser window pop up. Running automated tests on IE often fails because the browser either fails to start up or shut down properly. With a headless browser multiple browser instances can be run in parallel without taking up screen space.

                    Extends the CSS sizing properties with keywords that represent content-based "intrinsic" sizes and context-based "extrinsic" sizes, allowing CSS to more easily describe boxes that fit their content or fit into a particular layout context.

                      • W3C Manifest support

                        Add support for the new W3C manifest specification for pinned apps as well as for Windows store applications.

                        The spec allows for vendor extensions which can be used for things missing in the Level 1 of the spec. A lot of things have already been planned for Level 2 so it would be great if the MS team could participate in the discussions

                        • image-rendering: pixelated

                          This declaration is used to preserve pixels when scaling up images (e.g. pixel art). IE provides this functionality via -ms-interpolation-mode: nearest-neighbor. The other browser engines also provide this functionality (see here: http://www.simevidas.com/2015/05/10/Blowing-up-pixel-art-on-the-Web.html).

                          • Support CSS Motion Path Module

                            Since SMIL will be deprecated in Blink and there is no intent to implement in MS Edge, we need to fill in the gaps and provide alternative ways to do with CSS what we could do in SMIL.

                            The CSS Motion Path spec is now a Level 1 module and is in W3C Working Draft status:: http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-motion-1-20150409/

                            Using the properties defined in this specification, we will be able to animate HTML and SVG elements along arbitrary paths, using nothing but good old CSS.

                            There is a bug report open to fixes in Blink, hopefully to make it to implementation this…

                            • Implement :focus-within from Selectors 4

                              Tons of UIs include elements that are not visible unless the user interacts with their parent or ancestor. Think popup menus, delete or edit buttons, floating formatting toolbars, copy buttons, editing popups and so on. The list is endless. This is a good way to reduce visual clutter.
                              However, this is often done in an inaccessible way, just by using :hover, because making it accessible requires JS, since :focus does not apply to ancestors. However, 1 in 2 people writing HTML/CSS are not comfortable with JavaScript so keyboard accessibility (and usability, as many of us are keyboard users by choice)…
